Just Say Never Again.

reebok.jpgWhen I was in elementary school, the “Just Say No” campaign of Nancy Reagan was in full swing. I wish they also stressed the importance of saying no to shoes like these. Why on earth do stores want to bring fashion travestshamockeries like this back??? I wore this particular shoe with pink mesh shoelaces. At the time, I thought I was rockin (but I also thought Michael Jackson and George Michael would marry me). Now I want to save future clueless souls from my mistakes. Please for the love of all that is stylish, do not wear 1980s Reebok high tops, do not EVER put on a stirrup pant and stay far away from slouch socks (especially if you are wearing two pairs of different colors layered on top of the other. TRUST me, it is not a good idea). I can deal with the leggings, I can deal with the skinny pants, but I have to draw a line somewhere. Those of us in our late 20s and beyond have been through these mishaps and only want to warn others (and forget the awfulness we once put on our bodies.) As always, feel free to disagree and if you are dying to relive the years when you thought boys wearing full on makeup and spandex were hot then scoop these up @ Urban Outfitters.

    I just bought a pair of those the other day! How dare you say they aren’t cool?

    Just kidding. I remember having a pair of green/blue reebok hightops around the 4th grade. I’d never wear them now. All my tennies are Cole Hann G with Nike soles. The most comfy.

    I thought you had to be joking when I saw the picture but sadly, I see that’s not the case. Just *ugh*. And another reason to loathe Urban Outfitters.
